Pediatric Obesity Trials in Columbus
Aventiv Research is currently participating in a pediatric obesity study at our Columbus, Ohio location. There has been a dramatic increase in the prevalence of obesity among children and adolescents in recent years. Childhood and adolescent obesity, and obesity in general, is more than a superficial concern. It is a major health problem that affects the entire body and can lead to several medical complications including diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
Pediatric Obesity Study
The primary objective of this study is to compare the effect of an investigational drug versus placebo as an adjunct to a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity on weight management in adolescents with overweight or obesity. Your child may qualify for our pediatric obesity study if they:
- Are between the ages of 12 to 17 years
- Currently have a BMI greater or equal to the 95th percentile* OR greater or equal to the 85th percentile* with at least 1 weight related comorbidity such as hypertension, dyslipidaemia, obstructive sleep apnea, or type 2 diabetes
- Have a history of at least one self-reported unsuccessful dietary effort to lose weight
Participants must have the informed consent of parent(s) or legal guardian.
* on gender and age-specific growth charts (CDC.gov)
